AQUATICS

Adult Aquatics

Water provides the ideal environment for exercise. The natural buoyancy of water reduces weight-bearing stress, allowing greater ease of movement with less impact on joints and muscles. The increased density of water creates even and fluid resistance; toning and strengthening muscles with greater balance and efficiency. Whatever your level of physical activity, water exercise is an excellent way to improve fitness and maintain health at any age!
